I have seen successful "single cannon front - turrets rear" and "all beam array " cruisers.
Cruisers doing well...not escort damage, but very respectably damage around 75% of what your average escort poured out.
I myself run A Fleet Excelsior with 2 dual beams front with the Experimental beam and the Hyper plasma torpedo front, while 2 beam arrays, cutting beam and Omega torped rear. I use 100/100 power on shields and weapons.
I changed to this plasma build from a 3-3 full beam arrays one, and it seems better. Perhaps less energy drain, or the romulan torpedo making its mark.
Also, going full power to shields when tanking some boss is very recommended, as well as going full power to weapons when firing against something that does not fire back, like a transformer.
Also, what duty officer gives subnucleonic beam? I never heard of such a thing.
